The population with a migration background in Bavaria. Status of integration and integration policies.

The study has three parts: The first part presents the underlying theoretic integration model as well as central basic data on the population with a migration background. The second part deals with the social integration of people with a migration background in the receiving society. It contains specific data regarding residential statuses, naturalisations, education, the labour market, ways of living, language use, amicable relationships, memberships in associations and feelings of belonging. The third part discusses so-called systemic integration, meaning the cohesion of society as a whole. This is backed up by data about ethnic and ethnic-religious conflicts, abnormal behavior but also civic participation.

To give an overview of the current situation, the indicators of the "set of indicators to monitor integration in the German Länder" were used. Data for the indicators' values was mainly provided by the micro census. Moreover, indicator values of the population groups with and without a migration background were taken into account as well as timelines.

Data on the status of integration were complemented contextually with a list of integration measures implemented in Bavaria.

INTPOL: IMISCOE Feasibility Study on Integration and Integration Policies

The feasibility study on integration policy has developed a conceptual frame for the analysis of integration processes and research. One of the main tasks of the study was to find new lines of strategic research. A precondition for fulfilling this task was to identify gaps in existing integration research. For this purpose a mapping exercise was done on integration research as it is represented in leading journals. The feasibility study also developed a suggestion for an IMISCOE NETWORK project on Education of Immigrant Children Support: A cross - national study on measures to support children of immigrants' education in the pre - school phase and while in primary and secondary education. One of the main goals of the project is to develop an inventory of best practises. The theoretical part of the study is interested in the immigrant and immigrants as actors, in the role of ethnicity for the acceptance and success of measures, and in the national path dependency of structural integration policies.
